despite the findings the cdc is still recommending that everyone over 6 months gets the flu shot. most of the country is reporting widespread flu activity. the southeast texas and the midwest are the exception. this is the peak time for flu season. 135 that's the number of medical tests treatments and other procedures doctors say you should now avoid or at least seriously question. for instance, the american academy of pediatrics says physicians should think twice about doing ct scans on kids with minor head injuries or abdominal pain. the group says they don't usually increase diagnosis and raise the risk of cancer. recommendations if widely adopted would mean significant changes inpatient care and could save billions in healthcare costs. could your diet be making you fat? according to a new british survey nearly a third of women have seen a spike on the scale after going on a diet gaining an average of nearly 4 pounds. here is five reasons why.
first a diet can throw your body out of balance because some are too strict and make your metabolism go out of whack. diets don't allow for wiggle room you have to go all in so you have to be willing to stop eating whatever is prohibited forever. whenever you start eating it again you will put the weight back on. the third reason diets can make you fat you have to eat foods you don't like. experts say that creates feelings of deprivation and resentment which may intensify cravings for the bad stuff. diets are filled with fake food. most are loaded with additional additives and make you feel like eating more or something else. lastly diets permit foods you can't give up and it's impossible to indulge without derailing your results. for the latest health news go to fox news health.com. no diets. that's it. anna, thank you very much. >> the time now 24 after the hour. still to come more on the

another storm is going to hit the plains this weekend. on top of the foot, foot and a half in kansas you can get an additional 6 inches heading into the weekend. what was that groundhog thinking? the low pressure center across the upper midwest and the great lakes you have kind of a wintery mix moving in the mid atlantic and mainly rain across the southeast. so winter weather advisory posted for many states. we could get some snow, sleet or freezing rain. we have a freezing rain advisory for portions of western north carolina and then we have the wet side of this. the flooding threat. we could get several inches of rain let's get thunderstorms maybe reaching severe limits. we will keep an eye on it not looking for a tornado outbreak but hail and damaging winds. take a look at the precipitation accumulation over the next 72-hours. we have another storm moving in the northwest. look we are going to see more snow. 3 to 6 inches easily.
i think this is a little bit going over the edge. watching the heavy rains 2-3 inches here. look what we are dealing with in new england. some of the moisture leftover from the storm that hit the midwest will crawl up the coast and give us a coastal low. they got hit with a couple feet of snow and we think potential is there for more snow. possibly 6-12 inches. winter is any stretch of the imagination. patty and heather back to you. >> the tdefense wrapping up the case. >> the judge will make the decision this morning at 7:30

office without the broad base of bipartisan support and confidence needed to serve effectively in this critical position. the obama administration has stood firm behind hagel. >> if you smoke don't bother applying for a job at hospitals. they are going a step further than a smoke free campus. they will not hire any one who smoke tobacco. they already pay a sir charge on their health insurance. >> a colorado man is lucky to be alive after being nearly buried alive by an avalanche. this a picture of anthony robinson getting dug out of the snow aldrins. he's smiling. what kept his spirit so high during this life or death situation. >> i thought of my wife my 18
